Paul Foley, Co-Founder at Augur

Interning with Pivot Desk throughout my college career drastically accelerated my business and personal development. I recommend every student gets an internship with a startup.

Fletcher Richman, Platform Manager at Galvanize Ventures

Early internships with Everlater and Flipboard were critical in gaining the skills needed to start my first company. For any student that has the ambition to create their own business, a great place to start is by interning for a startup.
